Bank deposit nominee


A Widow pensioner,  named her grandson (First son's son) as nominee to a Bank fixed deposit and died without writing a Will. Can that Widow's  Second son and Daughter challenge it in court for a claim as legal heirs?

Nominees function is to receive the amount from bank , he is only trustee and has to disburse the amount to legal heirs.

Thank you Sir for the reply.

The funds are vested with the legal heirs. The nominee is only a trustee to receive the same on behalf of the legal heirs. If a legal heir, the nominee also gets his/her share.
